SMALL GROUPS





Surround

It has been said that your friends will determine the direction and quality of your life.  That is as true for adults as it is for kids and students.  Being a disciple of Jesus means to intentionally surround yourself with other disciples who can encourage and challenge you to grow, and to care for you when you are hurting or in need.  But it also means that you can be the one who challenges and encourages another to growth, and care for someone who may be hurting or in need.  


There are all sorts of names for small group ministries in various churches.  We have two categories of Groups:  LIFEGroups and ADVENTUREGroups.


LIFEGroups meet weekly from September-May (following the Bartow County School Calendar) and are designed to be a place  to connect with others as you learn to apply God's Word to your life...together.


ADVENTUREGroups meet periodically throughout the year to help you connect with others as you pursue common interests...together.


We want Groups to be a place where you can surround yourself with genuine friendships and grow in your walk with God. We all need friends who can encourage, support, and even challenge us. We all need spiritual friendships who can engage us in meaningful conversations, who can pray for us when we are discouraged or confused, and who can celebrate with us when we experience great joy.

YOU AND ME FOREVER

Marriage is Great, But it's not Forever

This seven session Bible study series, based on the book You and Me Forever from best-selling author Francis Chan and Lisa Chan, will challenge you to view your marriage like never before. These seven inspiring videos will help you dive deeper into the content of the book as you explore themes like:

  • It's until death do us part. Then comes eternal rewards or regrets depending on how we spent our lives.
  • While we cannot allow lesser things to destroy our marriages, we also cannot allow marriage to distract us from greater things.
  • A jealous God asks us to pursue Him first and most. Then life makes sense, and everything falls into its proper place.
  • Love, laughter, and intimacy were all created to be enjoyed. So there is a way to love family deeply without ignoring heaven.
  • It all comes down to our focus.
  • Jesus was right. We have it all backwards. The way to have a great marriage is by not focusing on marriage.

JAMES:  A STUDY THROUGH THE BOOK OF JAMES

True faith produces fruit. A faith without action and without life change is ultimately a dead faith. The book of James speaks to the realities of a living faith in Jesus—the kind of roll-up-your-sleeves and get-your-hands-dirty discipleship that is borne out of an authentic relationship with the risen Lord. James writes to believers who know suffering, who've faced trials, and who ultimately desire a deep relationship with God.


Francis Chan unpacks the dense truth contained in the book of James in front of the iconic backdrop of San Francisco, the city where he lives and ministers. Through 12 sessions, Francis works through James verse-by-verse, challenging followers of Christ to move beyond a private, intellectual knowledge of God and His Word, to a vibrant faith that impacts every square inch of life.

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
